"...until it means we can sue someone and make money off it." -- Apple now.

I think it`s "supposed" to be sarcasm, so don`t take it so literally. Apple seems to want to sue anybody that dares even look similar to one of their own products. See HERE for a look at the reality of the ridiculous suit. I`m even more less likely to buy an Apple product now. I hope this wasn`t Steve`s intended legacy... see video clip from link above.

I agree - of the above, only the iPod, and possibly the orange "=" key on the calculator, bears any similarity to the item it`s compared with. And even those have significant functional differences.

Ok, here`s my two cents....

aside from the ipod, all the product comparisons are of two products with two completely different purposes. Secondly, those Braun products are decades old. The patents are up and therefore designs and specs can both be copied without any legal issues.

The thing with Samsung was that Apple`s patents were not up during Samsung`s copying.

"Somehow people believe judges and juries all over the world were fighting over who owns a patent for rectangles."
No, no no. Rectangles with rounded edges. And button color. That makes all the difference on the rounded rectangles.

jamie76, another lost soul to the Samsung lawyer`s rhetoric. Somehow people believe judges and juries all over the world were fighting over who owns a patent for rectangles.

I have to agree with Jamie76. Not to mention maltreatment of their labor force, and no competition in manufacturing, which stifles innovation. Apple needs to grow up or die off.

I agree that some of the comparisons are a stretch. Really, the grill on a radio that most radios of that area used? And the calculator? I also note the glaring distinction that none of the products you compare were competing with each other for market share. AND, even if Braun had design patents, they would have expired by the time Apple possibly paid homage to them. There`s nothing wrong with admiring design and putting your spin on it. It`s when you materially copy every key aspect of it for the expressed purpose to steal customers away from the competition.

Apple claimed they invented the rectangle...yep. At this point only a true moron would buy anything that POS company steals and then calls their own.

Patent law is no different from any other tort law. The facts don`t matter; the law doesn`t matter; who had the best lawyers matters.

I love trying to explain sh*t like this to Apple fanboys who insist that Steve Jobs was a god. The majority of Apple products/features come from stolen ideas. Steve Jobs even admitted it, almost bragging about it in a 1996 documentary called "Triumph of the Nerds"

Not only are the designs similar, but their pricing structure for parts is astonishingly aligned. Braun charges $70 for a new foil for my shaver.

@Mikeoxsbiggg: did they patent it too before Apple? Otherwise not much of a case.

On the other hand, what a douche behaviour that of Apple`s.

This is stupid. The only interesting thing I see is "T1000". Maybe the producers of Terminator 2 also stole from Braun

They are being sued by a knockoff company that stole the iphone 5 and released it BEFORE Apple in China.
Karma`s a bitch Apple.
